  2. Kids should get a special class on this topic in civics.

    I always felt fortunate that in my school we had a lot of effort put in by several teachers on this general topic. Only as an adult did I appreciate how important it is for kids to question the labels put on by people trying to trick.

    Certain Kings/statesmen earned the title of " GREAT " in the past.
    Alexander the Great
    Peter the Great
    Catherine the Great
    Most of them cost a lot of lives. So not so applicable to today's kids.

    Who do you ask your kids to appreciate and copy ?
    A footballer ?
    Scientist ?
    Or a blood thirsty tyrant.
